Well, this was the first Michael Connelly -book for me. Strange that I have not bumped to him earlier because I really like these sort of crime detective novels. Well, better late than never, as they say.

The reason behind finding these books was Jo Nesbö and his Harry Hole -series. I listened all Harry Hole -audio books and really liked them. I also loved Harry as a main character. Harry Hole is middle-aged alcoholic rock fan. That's the type of hero I like.

In one interview Nesbö said that his main influence was Michael Connelly and Hieronymus Bosch -series. So after reading that I immediately crabbed this first book in Bosch -series.

And I did really liked it as you can see (4,5 stars out of five). Almost gave out five but I think the plot could have been just a little stronger.

I think that pretty soon they don't make books like these anymore because of all that woke-shit. So I am glad that I still have many more Bosch-books to go. Cheers for the future good reading times with those! ( )

After reading the first two books in the Lincoln Lawyer series and enjoying them, I wanted to return to where it all started for Michael Connelly.

The Black Echo, published in 1992, reads like an early 90s novel. The main character has many problematic opinions about everyone, from gay people to female FBI agents. But keeping in mind that this book is a product of its time and that Connelly has improved in that department quite a bit over the following decades, I decided to continue reading.

I liked Bosch well enough (aside from those problematic aspects I mentioned above). He's a tough, no-nonsense detective who isn't afraid to bend the rules to get the job done. He's intelligent, detail-oriented, and determined. Everything I'd want in a detective. He's also a complex character, and Connelly does an excellent job of capturing his inner turmoil and struggles.

The writing style is indicative of Connelly's future works -- his talent shines in this debut, and it's clear to see why he kept writing and why readers continued to clamour for his work.

I will continue with this series and look forward to charting Connelly's growth as a writer through his work. ( )

After having watched the TV shows “Bosch” and “Lincoln Lawyer”, both based on novels by Michael Connelly, I decided it was high-time to read a Bosch novel. Titus Welliver’s stellar performance as Bosch raised my expectations sky high…

In the novels, Detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch is a homicide detective in Los Angeles, who was named after a painter and whose mother was killed when he was young. He has a daughter with his ex-wife, and follows his own code of ethics. He is a loner and a maverick, who often faces conflicts with his bosses and peers. He is also a Vietnam War veteran where he served as a “tunnel rat”, a soldier who explored and cleared the underground tunnels used by the Viet Cong.

He is flawed, damaged, and sometimes reckless, but he is also loyal, brave, and compassionate. He has a strong sense of duty and honour, and he never gives up on a case. He is also very human, and he struggles with his personal relationships and his emotions. He is not perfect, but he is real.

In this first novel, “The Black Echo”, this is a prominent feature right from the start because a murder victim is found in a drainage pipe which quickly leads to Bosch investigating a bank heist which was carried out through the sewers…

“Echo” is an intelligent, well-written police procedural with a Bosch who could have jumped from the TV show back onto the pages of the novel: He’s disillusioned, tired, annoyed and angry most of the time and despite all that cannot help but do what’s right. He may stretch or break some rules along the way, but he always follows his conscience. I felt myself rooting for him all the way.

At least in the beginning of the novel, the writing shows that this was Connelly’s debut: It’s somewhat wooden and feels slightly clumsy.

»He became restless. He looked down into the green glass ashtray and saw that all the butts were unfiltered Camels. Was that Meadow's brand or his killer's? He got up and walked around the room. The faint smell of urine hit him again. He walked back into the bedroom. He opened the drawers of the bureau and stared at their contents once more. Nothing turned in his mind.«

After about the first third, though, the writing consistently improves; livelier, more engaging, and more elegant.

The pacing was a little slow in the beginning but picked up once Bosch had established rapport with the FBI. The more the story developed, the more fitting and even the pacing felt. From sedate pondering during observations to a wild chase through dark sewage tunnels, overall, Connelly did a great job.

“Echo” also seemed a bit dated - when Harry claims dibs on using a typewriter or asks people to look things up for him on the only computer in the department, it is obvious that this novel was first published in 1992. Also, people using public payphones all the time reminded me of those bad old times. I’m glad the TV show pushed things forward in time.

I also appreciated the supporting characters: Wish was a highly interesting partner and love interest. Lewis and Clarke, fittingly exploring what Bosch is doing, and trying to find something against him deliver comic relief and, ultimately, get their due… Last and least, Irvin Irving ist an interesting bureaucrat compared to Bosch’s relentless pragmatism.

The twists during the investigation were quite predictable but that didn't diminish my overall enjoyment of the story. Especially since the excellent ending precisely demonstrated what kind of person Bosch is…

Four out of five stars.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. Lots of good ideas and good characters but the plot was really clunky and requires too many leaps of faith. The ending was such a let down. The IA stuff is so badly written it barely makes sense. ( )

Big, brooding debut police thriller by Los Angeles Times crime-reporter Connelly, whose labyrinthine tale of a cop tracking vicious bank-robbers sparks and smolders but never quite catches fire. Swift and sure, with sharp characterizations, but at heart really a tightly wrapped package of cop-thriller cliches, from the hero's Dirty Harry persona to the venal brass, the mad-dog IAD cops, and the not-so-surprising villains. Still, Connelly knows his turf and perhaps he'll map it more freshly next time out.

Harry Bosch, detective de la policía de Los Ángeles quedó marcado por la dura experiencia de Vietnam. Ahora, un caso le devuelve su pasado. La víctima, Billy Meadows, había servido en su misma unidad. Ambos eran ratas de túnel que combatían en la red de pasajes subterráneos del Viet Cong; ambos experimentaron el terror del eco negro: la reverberación en las tinieblas de su propio pánico. Ahora Meadows está muerto. Pero su rastro parece apuntar a un gran atraco bancario perpetrado a través de túneles de alcantarillado.
